In the first half, no team scored any goals. There were dangerous attacks from Barcelona, but they did not lead to a goal.
Finally, open the score, Barcelona was able to start the second half – there was a cross from the left, Depay disoriented Ruli, and De Jong brought the ball into the already empty net. Villarreal made substitutions and one of them worked – Chukwese’s jerks were a revelation for the defense of Barcelona, which repeatedly released the Nigerian, and in the end he still scored after a timely pass from Danjuma – 1:1.
Depay beautifully beat the goalkeeper and rolled the ball between the legs of the defender located on the goal line and made the score 1:2 And finally Villarreal finished off Coutinho, who earned a penalty and converted it.
Thanks to the victory, Barcelona climbed to 7th place with 23 points. Villarreal has 16 points and 12th position.
